Abstract

In herpes zoster, motor complications are seen very rarely. Paresis of relevant muscles may develop secondary to involvement of the spinal cord, cervical, dorsal or lumbar anterior radices, brachial plexus, sciatic nerve and the phrenic nerve. Here, to increase the awareness of motor complications, we aimed to present 3 cases of herpes zoster motor paralysis in the light of literature. (Archives of Neuropsychiatry 2012; 49: 314-316)
